    Hi all. I am new to this forum (or any for that matter) so forgive me if I
    am not following protocol.

    I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ18 for wildlife pics, and some videos. I have been
    able to convert the .mov files to .avi, and would like to be able to select
    a section to save, rather than the whole video. My 24 sec video occupies
    30MB at current resolution, and I only want about 5 seconds of it. Any
    suggestions?

    Thanks
    allan

  3. You'd be better served on a camcorder group.. But yes is the correct
    answer.

    Windows box? Then open up Windows Movie Maker and have a play
    around. You''ll work it out. You set start and end points, and also
    save at different resolution/quality.

    You could also convert the AVI file to MPG (eg TMPgenc) which will dro
    the file size
